The International Leisure, Tourism & Events Management master programme is the perfect specialisation if you are interested in developing sustainable leisure concepts. You will earn a dual degree in just over 1 year, all while creating the future of tourism at an international level. 

Tourism managers know how to work with scenario planning. In this course, you will learn how, opening the door to a dynamic career.

You will have the opportunity to work on real-world research projects. Being part of the European Tourism Futures Institute (ETFI), you get to combine academic and applied research. This means you will learn the theoretical skills, but will also collaborate in hands-on projects.
